This morning, The New York Post gave the news that Anthony Weiner is contemplating a political comeback a pun-filled cover treatment.
Meanwhile, the Daily News devoted their front page to their ongoing coverage (some may call advocacy) of the gun control debate.
On a day when every tabloids’ favorite congressman is back in the spotlight, the Daily News‘s front page seems an odd choice. In a two-tabloid town, how, we wondered, has this impacted sales of the News?
In a highly unscientific survey, we canvassed 15 newsstands in the vicinity of our midtown office. Of the vendors we talked to, eight said that The Post outsells the News, two said that News sells better and the remaining five said that they were neck-and-neck.
